Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Systems Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft electronic flight bag (EFB) systems market: Boeing, Honeywell International, Rockwell Collins, Thales, and UNITED TECHNOLOGIES.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Astronautics Corporation of America, Esterline Technologies, International Flight Support, L-3 Communications, and Teledyne Controls.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovations in portable tablet computers. The technological advances in terms of connectivity for an aircraft are in the stage of evolution. Technology providers are more adding more features to the flight deck to enhance connectivity. The implementation of new features requires upgrades or replacement of the interface devices.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is use of advanced avionics systems for commercial aircraft. The aviation industry is regulated by agencies such as EASA, FAA, and ICAO. The primary goal of these organizations is to ensure the safety of passengers, cargo, and crew. Therefore, the role of automation has become vital. Automation enhances flight operational safety and aircraft efficiency while decreasing the operational costs. This is especially critical for commercial airlines, which cater to millions of passengers. Currently, many aircraft are equipped with highly efficient avionics systems such as autopilot; communications, navigation and surveillance systems; and electrical emergency systems.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is presence of software errors and program issues in AID. The future of the aerospace industry relies on the use of available software applications that analyze flight data in real time, which would help reduce operational costs. Many aircraft component manufacturing companies are trying to upgrade system software and add additional features. For instance, UTC Aerospace Systems developed a powerful tool for pre-to-post flight planning and analysis called OpsInsight Electronic Flight Folder. This application is programmed for iPads and allows the flight crew to plan a flight and provide a review of all NOTAMs pertaining to the route.
